[Spread-users] [PATCH] Correct names of spmonitor, spuser, and spflooder binaries in usage output

Currently, the binaries neglect to include the "sp" prefix recently introduced 
at the beginning of their names when referencing themselves in commandline 
feedback.  Here's an example using spmonitor:

Usage: monitor
         [-p <port number>]: specify port number
         [-n <proc name>]  : force computer name
         [-t <status timeout>]: specify number of seconds between status queries
         [-c <file name>]  : specify configuration file

Attached is a patch adding the new "sp" prefix.  Here's the associated change 
log message:

* daemon/flooder.c
* daemon/monitor.c
* daemon/user.c
   Include "sp" prefix on binary names when outputing usage information.

Now, the Right Way to do this is to either 1) parse the binary name off of 
argv[0] or 2) generate a #define via autoconf which sets the binary name.  A 
combined approach of #1 with a fallback to #2 is probably preferable.

Thanks, Dan
